Truck accidents often result in devastating injuries

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) states that a fully loaded tractor-trailer can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. Any commercial truck on the roadway is going to be larger and weigh much more than traditional passenger vehicles. This means that any truck versus passenger vehicle crash could result in significant injuries.
